Was thinking about just biting the bullet and ordering right now. I want the base 27" with one upgrade, the 1TB Fusion Drive. I'm going to use the EDU discount and I have a $100 gift card. Two questions... if I order it right now, do we have a realistic estimate of when it'd actually ship? It says January, which is annoying as hell, because that could be January 1, or January 30... What company in this day has such a weak grasp of their own production that their window they give is a 30 day window. Nuts. Also, if I use the $100 gift card, and they end up getting them in stores and I cancel the online CTO order (prior to shipment obviously), so they refund the $100 back to the gift card, or how does that work? Thanks, sorry if this is a somewhat babbling post.
